Microsoft Surface Go announced: compact, light and only $399

Microsoft Surface affordable tablet passes the FCC

The new lightweight Surface Go - about twice as big as many smartphones - is created to be portable.

The Microsoft Surface Go is a teeny-tiny laptop/tablet hybrid with a 10-inch screen, clocking in at just 1.15 pounds. The hinge can extend to 165 degrees for flexibility, allowing users to make it as a tablet or studio mode, and support for type and mouse input with their Signature Type Cover. This means that the Surface tablet will possibly be available for purchase by this Friday.

The Type Cover, of course, is the detachable keyboard for the Surface. If you take a look at the keyboard, Microsoft has included a trackpad large enough to hold an Olympic-sized swimming pool with full support for gestures as well.

Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed
Before resuming the rescue Monday, officials said they hoped to free all the boys by the end of the day, according to ABC News . After rescuing the four boys, the officials paused the operation for at least 10 hours to fill the oxygen tanks that were used.

Inside the fanless Surface Go you will find a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y.

You can preorder Surface Go today in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the U.K., Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Taiwan, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Malaysia, and Thailand. Just like the existing Surface Pro that was released a year ago, users have to purchase Surface Pen and Type Cover separately. All the features that are familiar about the Microsoft Surface Pro are present, including the PixelSense display, design cues, and an inbuilt kickstand.

Back in March, Apple launched the 9.7-inch iPad with the stylus support for $399. The device features a USB 3.1 port along with a Micro-SD card slot, which will prove a blessing for those who do not want to pay the company extra for more RAM and/or storage. The software giant kicked off its consumer hardware push in 2012 with the launch of the Surface RT.

Ten killed in Turkish train accident
Two train drivers were summoned for questioning by police on Monday over the accident, state news agency Anadolu reported . A passenger train has derailed in northwest Turkey, leading to deaths and injuries, according to local media reports.

After a week of rumors, Microsoft has finally unveiled the latest Surface model called the Surface Go. The device will reportedly retail for $400, include a USB-C port, and be 20 percent lighter than the current Surface Pro models, which now start at $799.

The entry-level Surface Go (4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage) sells for $399, while the next step up (8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage) costs $549. LTE and 256GB SSD models are coming later.

Microsoft also promised an LTE-enabled version later in 2018. While I have not fully tested the battery on the Surface Go, I would put real-world usage at around 6 hrs based on my experience with other Surface devices.
